Air purifiers and ultraviolet lights to be trialled in schools in bid to tackle Covid
- Thirty schools in Bradford are to take part in a scheme assessing how air purifiers and ultraviolet lights mitigate transmission of coronavirus in schools.
- The trial hopes to evaluate how feasible it is to implement the technologies in primary schools.
- The first round of results is expected by the end of the year and The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) will consider their decision once the trial is complete.
- This effort is being backed by £1.8 million from the DHSC and is being conducted by the Centre for Applied Education Research.
- This could lead to the technologies being rolled out in schools from 2022, if successful.
